Yacht maintenance is an unavoidable part of yacht ownership. Routine system checkups and servicing will ensure that the investment made in the yacht is protected. While yacht maintenance and yacht repairs can be complicated or lengthy in process, they should not be stressful. Establishing a schedule and planning for unexpected repairs is the first step in a yacht maintenance program. The second step is knowing whom you can call when it's time for maintenance or if a problem arises. A yacht systems specialist with certified technicians and years of industry experience is worth having on speed dial.
Yacht repair and maintenance
For more than 20 years, we have helped yacht captains and owners keep their yachts in top shape. Our two office locations, including a warehouse at the Lauderdale Marine Center (LMC), means we are well equipped to meet the needs of yachts of all sizes. Our certified team of technicians and expert engineers can identify any system weakness or vulnerability. When trouble arises, we can troubleshoot and repair your yacht's electrical, communication, security, and AC systems. These services are just the tip of the iceberg. Take, for instance, our experience with gangway repairs. We are the most experienced company in European automatic doors, davits, and gangways in Fort Lauderdale and South Florida. We specialize in replacing obsolete control boards with new hardware and software solutions. We are the authorized warranty service provider for Sanguineti and the best in service for Besenzoni & Opacmare.
Monitoring and Control System Upgrade
At times, part of yacht maintenance is upgrading monitoring and control system software. When you set out to electronically connect engines, generators, lighting, HVAC, audio/ video, and other equipment, you want the process to be seamless, with the outcome being increased system functionality. Brands like Simrad and Naviop are two examples of companies creating superior monitoring and control technology. In this video below, Emanuele Di Bartolo from Naviop explains the numerous monitoring and control capabilities of a custom Naviop system and Simrad multi-function display interface. Controlling lights, monitor engine status, manage alarms so much more can happen on a single screen.
This video is just one example. We can design, install, repair, maintain or expand any make or even reverse engineer and repair your outdated documented system.
Marine Electronics Upgrade
Navigation electronics, like monitoring and control systems, evolve quickly. Our customers have come to us because they want to install the latest generation chart plotter, GPS, radar, or fish finder depending on their needs. On May 12, 2021, Yacht Monthly published an article called Tech focus: The future of the Chartplotter. At that time, B&G, Raymarine, and Garmin launched new products that set a new standard in the industry. Earlier in the year, Fisherman Magazine published the 2021 Marine Electronics Roundup. The article highlights products such as Furuno's TZtouch3 family of multi-function displays, Humminbird's new APEX series of large-screen MFD, Simrad's new NSS Evo 3S, Garmin's GPSMAP 7×3, 9×3, and 12×3 next-generation mid-sized chartplotters and combination units, and Raymarine's new Axiom+ MFDs.
Considering the article was written in February 2021, it is likely to see products entering the market in time for the boat show season. If you are looking to upgrade your marine electronics but don't know where to begin with so many options, we can help. Not only will we make the best recommendations based on your yacht, but we can also install the product for you.
Internet and Audio Visual Upgrade
We live in a very connected world, and for many of us, it's hard to be away from our phones, music, movies, and other forms of entertainment that can make yachting fun. Luckily for all of us, improved internet capabilities onboard yachts can keep us all connected. A powerful internet and communications system facilitate the use of Satellite TV, interior and exterior sound systems, multimedia on-demand, and the use of tablets and remote controls. The perfect lighting enhances the experience. On March 24, 2021, Boat International published an article called What's trending in superyacht technology? Streaming on yachts (Netflix and Youtube), IT support at sea, smart apps, cybersecurity, and emotional rooms (this is where lighting is crucial), were all included. Upgrading your internet, communications, and audiovisual can elevate your entire yachting experience, and we are here to help.
